Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sticky and confidence-inspiring The 5Ps were the original equipment tires on my '13 C63 AMG. I absolutely loved them. When it was time for new tires, I temporarily switched to the ExtremeContact DW tires, which were also great (particularly in wet conditions). This summer, I decided to purchase and install a new set of 5Ps. I am thrilled with my decision. These tires are incredibly sticky; the grip is phenomenal. After a few hundred miles worth of break-in, the tires are facilitating great steering feel. Turn in is sharp, crisp, and precise. The ride is comfortable and quiet. In sum, these are outstanding max performance summer tires.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good on track, not for daily driving These tires were OEM on my Audi A3 with sport package. Tires are good from performance point of view with excellent traction and cornering. However, for daily driving on uneven roads and potholes, these tires are a nightmare. They are loud, stiff and uncomfortable. You'll feel each and every bump on the road which made my driving very unpleasant. I changed these tires just after two months to another excellent product from Continental - ExtremeContact DW. So bottom line: for race track - yes, for daily driving - no!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I got 5600 miles out of this tire in my Tesla I picked up a nail after driving 5600 miles on these tires on my Tesla. I don't drive hard, I have kept them properly inflated, and the treads look fine. When I took it into Discount Tire where I bought the tires to have the nail removed, the refused to fix it because there is not enough tread left on the inside treads. I put Michelin Super Sports on the front and they still look brand new. I would never recommend this tire, its expensive and it wears out too quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tire for the Macan S Excellent ride and handling, and quiet! I've so many tires that suffer from road noise and vibration. No such problem with these. Have 22,700 miles on my Porsche Macan S and probably still have a couple thousand miles before they reach the wear bands. I will definitely replace the tires with these OEMs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great handling but harsh ride came new on my tesla, driven them for 53000 km still has some thread. these tires are great in thread life and handling, but they give you a harsh ride every hole can be felt. the road noise is also quite high.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from E63 AMG - Outstanding Tire This tire has worn very well, and at 10K Miles shows no appreciable wear. What wear exists, is evenly distributed across the tread. They handle very well in wet or dry and has exceeded my expectations
